On a high from Down Under

By Nuala McKeever

I love Australia! It's got the best of all the parts of the world I've been before. Exotic rainforest, people who speak English (ish), international food and drink, good roads, unexplored parts where roads don't exist.

It has politics so similar to home y'don't have to feel bad about how rubbish WE are at it all. And a spirit of can-do that's a bit like the Americans but not as tiring.

Strange and familiar. "Get on with it!" mixed with "Sure why would y'bother, it'll all end in tears." And sunshine. Glorious sunshine.

Thanks Oz, I'll be back!
